Forza Motorsport 7, Red Dead Online, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, Hotshot Racing, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, Disgaea 4 Complete+ (Windows), and Company of Heroes 2: Complete Collection (Windows) are all set to drop out of Xbox Game Pass in mid-September.

Forza Motorsport 7

Forza Motorsport 7 - Review

We already knew that Forza Motorsport 7 would leave Xbox Game Pass this month as Microsoft previously announced that the racing sim and all of its DLC packs were to be delisted from the Microsoft Store on September 15th. If you haven't completed this one already, you'll need to set aside between 120 and 150 hours to unlock all 62 of Forza Motorsport 7's achievements before it's removed from Game Pass and the Microsoft Store. Otherwise, you'll need to purchase the game in full, which is currently on sale at a pretty reasonable price.

Forza Motorsport 7 will reach 'end of life' status on September 15, 2021. That means that the game and its associated DLC will no longer be available for purchase after that date. After September 15, 2021, players who own Forza Motorsport 7 will still be able to download and play the game and its associated content as normal. To learn more visit aka.ms/FM7FAQ.

Red Dead Online

Red Dead Online

Red Dead Online is another game that we already knew was leaving Xbox Game Pass this month. Red Dead Redemption 2's multiplayer will drop out of Game Pass on September 13th, so you'd better finish up all of your horse wrangling and despicable deeds before it rides off across the plains and out of the Game Pass library into the sunset.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales

Screens

Dropping out of Xbox Game Pass on September 15th is Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales — the superb single-player RPG set in The Witcher universe. Estimates suggest that it will take you between 30 and 35 hours to complete the RPG that is based around the card game Gwent. You might be able to complete Thronebreaker slightly quicker than the completion estimates suggest if you follow our Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales walkthrough, written by Fuchsdh.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales

Thronebreaker is a single player role-playing game set in the world of The Witcher that combines narrative-driven exploration with unique puzzles and card battle mechanics.



Hotshot Racing

Hotshot Racing game pass

Hotshot Racing is a pretty tough completion that requires a fair bit of grinding to unlock all of its achievements. Estimates suggest that it will take between 25 and 30 hours for the 1,000G, and to do it in that time, you'll need to unlock 10 achievements that require you to win various races and Grand Prix events on Expert difficulty — the AI is pretty unforgiving in Expert mode. A title update was also released for the arcade racing game that added another three achievements and 90 Gamerscore. Hotshot Racing drops out of Xbox Game Pass on September 15th.

Also, leaving Xbox Game Pass on the 15th is The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics. According to completion estimates, it will take you between 20 and 25 hours to unlock all of the game's achievements. However, you will need to play through the game again and complete it in New Game+ Mode to unlock the There and Back Again achievement.

Dropping out of Xbox Game Pass for PC on the 15th is the turn-based RPG Disgaea 4 Complete+. This one is a mammoth of a completion and will take you between 120 and 150 hours to unlock all 51 of the game's achievements. Out of the 3,000 people who started Disgaea 4 Complete+ here on TA, just 16 have managed the full completion.
